Description Technical Specs

Introducing the 14' Tower Xplorer SUP Package

Includes a 14' by 32" by 8" inflatable SUP, a 3-PC Aluminum Paddle, a high-pressure SUP pump, and a high-end Tower branded diamond grooved deck pad, a standard longboard fin box with a removable center fin, a hand hold strap, a roll-up carrying strap, a towing ring on the nose, and a leash attachment ring on the tail.

A New Frontier in Inflatable SUPs

It will shock you how fast the 14' Tower Xplorer inflatable paddle board is. At 8" thick, it will also shock you how rigid it is. At the time of introduction, not only is there no other 14' iSUP on the market. Nor is there any other 8" thick iSUPs on the market. The Xplorer represents and entirely new class of paddle board, and everyone who tries it falls in love.

Traditional hard board unlimited racing class SUPs are the fastest boards on the market. At 14' or longer, and with many over 7.5 inches thick, they also present a massive storage and transportation problem. For speed and glide, the longer the better, but it's a bitter tradeoff. You need an oversized room or garage to store them, and you've got to crate them for shipping (at a cost of $1000s per shipment). This is largely why more manageable 12'6" length hard boards have become the standard racing class size, but really they're still monsters to transport.

However, when you go with an inflatable, the length is largely irrelevant for storage and transportation as you just roll them up and go. We figured the longer the better, and we were right on the money. Once we tested the boards, we were blown away at the speed. It's the fastest board in our entire line-up... and if fits in a duffel bag when rolled up.

Amazing Rigidity

The Tower Xplorer Inflatable SUP is made from extremely rugged materials like those you'd find on the highly regarded Zodiac boats and extreme river rafts. The amazing rigidity in the Xplorer is created by thousands of vertically oriented strands of identical length that connect the top deck to the bottom. When inflated, they form a structure that has the rigidity of a piece of plywood, and the thicker you go the exponentially more rigid it gets. The Tower Xplorer is an unparalleled 8" thick. You'll be amazed. We can literally put the front tip of the 14' Tower Xplorer on one chair and the rear tip on another chair and a 200 lb person can stand in the middle and you can barely see the thing flex.

A Viable EPS/Epoxy Board Alternative - We're not kidding!

Traditionally, inflatable SUPs were only a consideration for traveling - store one in the cuddy cabin on your yacht, take it with you on the plane, or haul it into that secret mountain lake or river and you can stand up paddle board in the farthest corners of the earth. With the combination of speed and rigidity of the Tower Xplorer, an inflatable SUP is hard to beat on flatwater with anything less than a full-fledged racing hard board... and don't be surprised if it outperforms a few of those.

Benefits of an Inflatable SUP over an EPS/Epoxy board

  • Easier to store - When rolled up, it's 1 foot in diameter and 37" wide.
  • Indestructible - Never worry again about dings and board cracks. I've literally thrown these things off a 2nd story deck and I frequently set it down anywhere (gravel, a parking lot, even on cement stairs).
  • Easier to transport - No need for roof racks. About the size of a rolled sleeping bag, it easily fits in any car or boat, and can even be strapped onto a bicycle or motorcycle. You can even take it on a plane.
  • Softer - You can literally play bumper boats with these. Kids can jump from one board to the other like they're jumping on an inner tube. You won't get knocked out in the waves either.
  • Easy on the feet - While very rigid, the air does cushion your feet a lot more than a hard board, no matter how good the deck pad is.
  • Less expensive - Which also makes it a great idea as a second board for travel or guests.

Perfect Board for Me! February 19, 2015
Review by: MikeP from Ohio  
After learning to SUP on Kauai in 2010 I have been waiting a long time to get my own but don't have the space in the garage nor the vehicle that can transport a board. I was skeptical about an inflatable but finally got a chance to try one at a recent paddling event and I was blown away by the speed and comfort of the Explorer. When my board arrived it was just as described and it took only 8 minutes to inflate it to 12 psi and I couldn't be happier. Just wish we had some warm weather now (Ohio) so I could get on the water already but thanks to Tower's recent Black Friday sale I am a proud iSUP owner!

A Review in Progress July 24, 2014
Review by: Kat from Cape Coral, FL United States  
Ordered 7/16,shipped next day, rcvd 7/23.

Unpacked, unrolled, plastic extremely heavy duty and came w/strap.

I used my 12v car high pressure pump to inflate to 6psi, directions say 10 but I was just worried it would explode. Took about 5 min total. Board was super firm, sounded like planks of wood when I set it on the floor. Fat girl (that is me) sat on it and then stood on it and there was almost no give at all. This board is FIRM!! I will update more tmrw after I take it out on the water.

Delfation was a snap it's own weight makes it the easiest inflatable to deflate I have ever experienced. Fits perfectly in the back of my Nissan Cube. Will report more later but for now am THRILLED!

Lovin the Xplorer July 10, 2014
Review by: Forestpig from Arizona  
Got my new iSUP and Have had it out on the water a few times now.  Very stable and surprisingly fast.  It takes less than 10 minutes to pump up (I timed it).  The paddle is a little heavy but I guess that just adds to the workout.  I found a big duffle bag on line that fits well.  I did add tiedowns to the front to haul gear or snacks if I need it. I HIGHLY recommend this iSUP

great board for the $$ March 31, 2014
Review by: JW from Idaho rivers and lakes  
I own three inflatables including the Tower 14'. Its the cheapest board I bought. I've had the Tower since last September and love it. It's a yacht. It's fast in a straight line and very stable. The race-style nose cuts chop well. Anyone can paddle this thing. I've checked it as baggage overseas twice. The last trip was in January to Costa Rica. The board, a three piece paddle and pump all fit in one large duffle. It was so much better than messing with rental boards and made it easy to launch from any beach, anywhere. Something you can't do with most rentals. The size makes it the perfect touring board. Add some d-rings as lash points and you can haul a massive amount of gear with this thing. It's my favorite board.

Great inflatable board March 21, 2014
Review by: Drew from Tampa  
I did a lot of research and looking before settling on the tower 14' Xplorer. I have been very pleased with my purchase. Here's why:

1) It's easy to transport and store
2) The thickness gives amazing rigidity, making the ride more like a traditional board with the added advantage of a huge weight capacity!
3) That allows me to take my SUP fishing in the shallows with all of my gear and my dog.
4) This material is extremely durable. The first day out I ran into a piling with sharp barnacles and oyster shells. It barely left a mark.  
5) Inflation time is under 10min. It is a little bit of a work out, but that's part of why I paddle.

The only con I can think of is that like all inflatables, it's not meant for catching waves in the surf.
